The key to spiritual awakening is located in the very center of our own being, in the body’s seven subtle energy centers, the chakras along the spine, according to India’s ancient sages. By learning to channel our internal energy through the chakra system, we can release unproductive attitudes, tendencies, and habits accumulated over lifetimes. Through the yogic practices of chanting, pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, and contemplation, and the use of specific sounds (bija mantras) and colors which correspond to each chakra, we will begin to unlock, balance, and guide the energy contained in these sacred centers leading to spiritual transformation and higher consciousness.
Note: Please bring a journal or notebook.
